Hi everyone. My name is Alex Sidorowych, I live in Ames Iowa and I am happy to be a new member. I just paid my dues and am looking forward to starting to meet some of you as well as learn from you all. I started last year with a 30 gal marine tank, then my friend bought a 55 gal, so I felt I had to outdo him and bought a 75 gal. My 75 has now been running for about 6 months. I just starting adding some soft coral last month and everything has been doing great. I'm still very new to the hobby and have been doing a lot of reading and was referred to this forum when I was at Pets Playhouse in Cedar Rapids. This place is great, just reading through these threads has educated me a great deal. It should be noted I am still very much a novice at the hobby so forgive me if I sound like an idiot whenever I ask questions or make posts. I'm getting my camera back from a friend later this week so I will try and post some pics.
